Which of the two versions of the Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus be the most powerful?

There is very little left for the new one to go on sale officially Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus, a phone with excellent design, screen, battery life and cameras, but also a good performance.

The Galaxy S10 Plus will be released with two different processor versions: the Exynos 9820 and the Snapdragon 855 from Qualcomm depending on the region in which it is acquired.

Both are the best chips in each house and although the results are quite similar, one of the two has won in each field after performing different performance tests with the so-called synthetic tests. Let's see.

Test of performance

Galaxy S10 Plus (Snapdragon 855)

Galaxy S10 Plus (Exynos 9820)

Geekbench 4: Single-core (one core)

Geekbench 4: Multi-core (multiple cores)

3DMark Ice Storm (unlimited)







Geekbench 4 is a performance test that tests both the processor and its internal components, as well as RAM, to determine how they perform between them.

As we see in the results reported by Geekbench 4 that we show in the table, the performance of the Galaxy S10 Plus with Exynos 9820 offers higher performance results for a single core and is matched with the Snapdragon 855 in multiple cores.

On the other hand is 3D Mark, a benchmark dedicated to evaluating the creation of 3D graphics by the processor (especially by the accompanying GPU). Thanks to 3D Mark we can get an idea of ​​the fluidity and ease with which the processor executes the graphics on the screen, the ability to offer less fps drops and to have lags.

In this case, the results leave the S10 Plus with Snapdragon 855 above the Exynos 9820, with a score of 60,764 compared to 55,092.

Anyway, and although the results of the synthetic tests can help us get an idea of ​​the phone's performance, we must not forget that they are theoretical results and should not necessarily be 100 percent realistic, since multiple cell phones depend on multiple factors: from RAM to the amount of resources consumed by the manufacturer's customization layers.
